Hello, I have been reading a lot of threads on the forum but I still have a question that is not answered. I am currently a 16 years old US citizen living in France. I am planning on taking the SAT in october, that test will cost 51$. I am also planning on taking the SAT at least two times to have higher scores. Due to the expenses on the SAT test, I will not afford paying the ACT + writing test which would cost me 52.5$ + 33$( because I will not take the test in the US ). So my question is : Will my application be less competitive because I will only have SAT scores ? I know they are not just looking for the academics but also leadership volunteering hours etc . Thank you very much.
